Paper fiber has been used in many cultures to make clothing and costumes, house structures, ritual objects and elements. A paper cup holding hot coffee is an incredible feat of 3 – D paper ingenuity. Paper is an integral part of our everyday existence. It is strong, tough, and a master of disguises. This course will explore the possibilities of various paper fibers as sculptural medium. Non-traditional and some traditional armature structures specific to the capabilities of each fiber will be explored as well as making new to accommodate ideas brought to class. Pigments and surface treatment can suggest other materials were used while the paper maintains it’s lightweight and durable qualities.
